Just back from 5 days in the North Wasatch, great sunny weather and BIG stashes of POW at The Canyons, Snowbasin and Powder Mountain.
Got in from West Palm tuesday afternoon and met fellow Bear, Rich Getz..I don't know his handle, but have known him for 27 years.
With our Park City "freebie" tix in hand we meet up with fellow easterner Chris from VT, a Pet Vet and his squeeze.
He had been on vaca for 6 days and showed us the POW up on 99,90. Great first turns for me, just where I needed to be in the flat light conditions.
Off to SLC to pick up late arriving Chet the Jet, and off to Ogden we go. We call it Hogden cause we are the Hog Squad!
Next three days are spent at Snowbasin shooting lots of video and skiing are ARSSSes Off!!!
Can you say Hell's Canyon? Three 50-somethings survived to ski it three times in two days.
Sunny skies and near 32 degree temps kept the snow just right. It is true what they say about this place. no body is here and the snow knows it. It hadn't snowed since early tuesday and we had freshies and leftovers for five days.
Powder Mountain is, in a word, a playground. Snow Country freshies on saturday three tines, Snow Country picnic and last snowcat of the day to Lightning Ridge made for a great last day for me.
Best T-shirt I've seen lately: "SL,UT". Wish I had thought of it!
I need to resize some pics for posting. I'll get some up shortly.
